Develop a Procurement Policy

An environmentally responsible and sustainable procurement policy can be just as beneficial to your business or organization as it is to the environment.  Companies with commitments to sourcing FSC-certified products and materials will simultaneously advance corporate social responsibility efforts, protect forests which are a proven natural climate solution in the fight against climate change, and create a unique competitive advantage that has the potential to unlock new revenue streams.
